Our Mission and Why You Should Join

As we carry out St. Francis’ legacy, our priority is always to aid the poor. Our mission is to care for the poor via simple things such as providing shelter, building a place of worship, supporting friars and empowering others to assist in these life changing gifts.

When you Join Our Cause you are helping a community that desperately needs your help. Please take this opportunity to help maximize our efforts and Join Our Cause.


Monthly Giving – The Poverello Giving Team

Follow in the Footsteps of St. Francis of Assissi and serve the poor by joining the Poverello Giving Team! These brothers and sisters “do without” as a way of life. As a result, the caring and kindness of the Poverello Giving Team is felt each day by some of the poorest people in our world—people trapped in living conditions without fresh, clean water, food, or medical treatment.

Join Poverello!
